From their standoubt debut track ‘Pockets’ onwards, Easy Life have staked their claim as one of the UK’s - says GQ – “next big bands.” Showcasing a charismatic but confessional way with the minutiae of everyday life, theirs is a genre-busting attitude that, like many of their generation, draws no line between a love of transatlantic hip-hop, R&B, and great British storytellers. On a personal level, Easy Life have also come to represent the power of hard graft and a positive outlook when global optimism seems in particularly short supply. From front-man Murray’s upbringing on a farm in Leicester to lyrics that tackle the future of the planet (‘Earth’) or male mental health (‘Nightmares’) down to daily essentials like ‘OJPL’, everything about Easy Life appears effortless, even though the reality has been quite the opposite. The band have already sold out sizeable dates worldwide, appeared on the likes of ‘Later…with Jools Holland’ and the FIFA soundtrack, on top of finding fans ranging from Dame Emma Thompson to The Specials. With new single ‘Nice Guys’, Easy Life emerge (NME) as the undisputed “the leaders of the pack.”

The five band members of Easy Life share a taste for hip hop, jazz and funk. The band knows how to combine those styles with indie, slacker-rock and more everyday influences from the rainy Leicester. The result are blissful indie pop songs with a hint of hip-hop and all a catchy chorus. The unmistakable laidback sound perfectly matches the “Easy Life” lifestyle of the band. On a catchy groove the band communicates a clear message about hedonism, seduction and simplicity.
